Innervate Official GCC Launch

Proud to officially launch in Manama amongst distinguished guests

Our launch party, graciously hosted by His Excellency Simon Martin and his wife Sophie, at The British Embassy in Bahrain, was attended by many guests including His Excellency Zayed R. Alzayani – Minister of Industry, Commerce & Tourism, as well as John Kilmartin an Executive Director responsible for Business Development at Bahrains Economics Development Board (EDB) and Khalid Saad CEO of FinTech Bay. We were privileged to be able to host our launch in the beautiful British Embassy Gardens. The launch commemorates 6 months of an exceptional journey for Innervate in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, culminating in the registration and opening of our first office in the Middle East.

“We are delighted that Innervate has chosen to establish a permanent office in Bahrain that will service clients across the region. This indicates its confidence in Bahrain’s strategy to rapidly advance and develop as a regional ICT hub and highlights Bahrain’s attractive environment where companies can experience some of the lowest costs of doing business in the Gulf.”

John Kilmartin, EDB Executive Director – ICT

Innervate have been so impressed with the support, hospitality, and the shared vision for the region with everyone we have met in Bahrain. This is why we chose the Kingdom of Bahrain to be the location for our expansion in the region. This will allow us to better support our existing clients, and provide a higher quality of service to our new clients and partners. Innervate are excited to be a part of the delivery of Vision 2030 as part of Team Bahrain.

“Over the past few months, Team Bahrain worked with us and gave us the confidence to decide on Bahrain. They have warmly welcomed and actively supported us in our plans across the region, and I have no doubt we will see success in bringing Innervate’s British and international financial services expertise to customers and prospective clients across the Middle East market.”

Arun Murria,  Innervate Business Development Director

As part of our commitment to delivering high-quality platforms and solutions, we will be investing in skill and knowledge transfers to our local hires. Having developed local resources will only make our offering stronger and our delivery better.

Whilst we have our eyes set on the opportunities and possibilities on the horizon, we’d like to offer our wholehearted thanks to our friends at the EDB, FinTech Bay and The British Embassy for all their support in recent months.
